DIY Goo Gone for Cheap

I wanted to make something that works great like goo gone but is all natural, so I made this DIY goo gone for cheap! The dreaded goo, gum, sticky residue can be a major letdown. I just hate ruining my favorite top or imagining gum in my girl’s hair (ah!)

I love lemon essential oil as is but making it into this paste is useful for certain stains and surfaces. It removes grease too!

DIY Goo Gone for Cheap

You will need:

  1. 2 parts borax
  2. 1 part water
  3. lemon essential oil (I use 20 drops per cup)


Rub the goo gone on goo, gum and other sticky residue to remove it.
